I have been experimenting with adding some high-quality dairy in my diet lately. It has been working pretty well. I don’t seem to do well with yogurt but cheese and heavy cream have been going down rather well. I always look for grass fed or raw dairy and at the very minimum organic. It can be hard to find so I often go without.
Don’t tell the Paleo police but I like cheese, lol!
Since I learned about the Weston A. Price movement in nutrition school, I have truly believed that some dairy can be included in a Paleo template on a case-by-case basis. It is important to pull out all dairy for 30 to 60 days but then add it back, if desired, slowly and watch for reactions. I basically didn’t eat cheese for 3 years so I think that qualifies as an elimination period. I have been trying a bit here and there and it does not seem to cause any digestive issues.
Make sure you really do make an effort to get the good (raw, grass fed and organic) stuff because I have been learning lately that cheese can even have GMO’s from rennet and 2nd hand from grain-fed cows.
Low Carb Cauliflower Macaroni and Cheese Recipe
5 cups cauliflower florets
Sea salt and pepper to taste
1 cup coconut milk, canned
1/2 cup homemade broth
2 tbsp coconut flour, sifted
1 soy free organic egg, beaten
Preheat the oven to 350.
Salt the cauliflower then steam it until al dente.
Then place the florets in a greased baking dish.
In a skillet heat up the coconut milk with a pinch of salt and pepper over medium heat.
Add the broth and keep stirring.
Add the coconut flour to the mixture and let the sauce bubble.
Remove the sauce from heat then whisk in the egg.
The sauce should thicken and then pour it over the cauliflower.
Add the cheese evenly then bake for 35-40 minutes.
Turn the oven to broil for 3-5 minutes to get a nice color on top.

I had some questions myself when I wanted to try ketois but all the info was hard to find and scattered all over the web. I wished there was one easy guide to follow with all the tips and tricks in one place from a veteran who has tried it herself. Well now there is in the new book from Kim Knoch of Eat Fat Lose Fat Blog. She lost 40 lbs and was so excited she had to share keto with the world. The great thing about her book is that she writes from experience with her own health and weight problems.
I don’t know about you but I hate it when naturally skinny people tell me how to be thin. I feel like they don’t have any clue what I have been through as an overweight child all the way to being an obese college student. When I read Kim’s book I was like “this chick gets me!” You can hear the pain and the struggle she has been through. She knows the challenges that over eaters and/or chronic dieters face and you can hear the hope in her voice that comes through when she finally found Keto! Kim says it was like the light went on and it clicked!!! I felt a connection with her after reading and you will too!
This book so great because it is easy to read, logically laid out and full of hints and tips the whole way.
